Notes from Mrs. Bervert


Thanks for another great week of learning together. I was able to visit STARBASE with our fifth graders and I was so impressed by the respect and behavior of our fifth graders in working with guest teachers and members of the military. Our students did a great job of representing Berryton. A few reminders and items of note:

  • Dean of Student Update- We are thrilled to announce that Mrs. Laura Hurla will serve as our full-time Dean of Students next year. A Dean of Student supports the principal in assisting with behavioral needs at the school and on the bus. Mrs. Hurla is finishing her doctorate and is passionate about continuing to serve the BES community.

  • Track Intramurals- 5th and 6th graders don't miss out on the opportunity to do track this spring. There will be a track meet at the end of the season on May 9th at SHHS.

  • BES Apparel- PTO has extended the deadline to April 10th so check out the link below for some online shopping.

  • Relocating- As we begin planning for the 22-23 academic year please email Mrs. Tanya (howbertt@usd450.net) if your child will not be returning to BES.

  • Camp Invention- Coming to BES June 13-17- Interested in having your child attend? Sign Up on the form below.

  • Student Information Form- We value input from parents as we create class lists for the 22-23 academic year. Check out the form below if you'd like to share information with BES regarding your child's specific needs.

Have a Great Weekend!

I am passionate about continuing to learn professionally, and building relationships with staff and students at Berryton Elementary.
